A strange incident occurred last week at which proves a school resource officer must wear many hats.
Officials found a lost horse grazing in front of the school Sept. 5. Fortunately, School Resource Officer Yvonne Bonner has experience with horses. She rode the animal safely home and back to its barn, the school says on its Facebook page.
The post on the school's wall has garnered at least 79 likes and 23 comments. One poster describes the events in more detail:
"For all concerned, Officer Bonner rounded up the horse with the help of staff who were working on the grounds of NKMS. She says she radioed for a patrol car, and wound up with something to tie to the horse to begin the walk home. She then rode the horse down Geyer, garnering much attention as she went, and took the horse home. What a lady! We are so proud and fortunate to have Yvonne Bonner keeping the streets and schools safe in Kirkwood!"
